Analysis:

It might take time for the Blue Jays lineup to get cranked up so we expect a low-scoring game between the Indians and Blue Jays on Tuesday night.

The Blue Jays host the Indians on Tuesday night with knuckleballer R.A. Dickey making his debut for Toronto.  Dickey only made two actual Spring Training starts although he threw 102 pitches in eight innings on Friday against Philadelphia’s minor leaguers.  Dickey is going against the Indians for the first time since 2010.  He has had success against Mark Reynolds (0-6), Drew Stubbs (1-9), and Nick Swisher (2-12).  Those are three of the new acquisitions Cleveland made in the offseason.  None of them exactly inspire too much confidence for an offense that struggled at times last season.

Opposing Dickey is Justin Masterson who is a talented pitcher that struggled to harness it last season with the Tribe.  He struck out 14 in his last two starts of the Spring where he gave up 3 runs in 10 innings of work.  Masterson actually had two good outings against Toronto last year giving up 1 run and seven hits in 15 innings striking out 15 while walking only two.  JP Arencibia (1-5), Rajai Davis (1-7), Edwin Encarnacion (2-10), Maicer Izturis (2-12), Brett Lawrie (0-6) and Colby Rasmus (0-6) all have poor numbers against the Cleveland ace.  It might take time for the Blue Jays lineup to get cranked up so we expect a low-scoring game between the Indians and Blue Jays on Tuesday night.
